Re: Wrap the steering wheel with rope?

If you are considering wrapping a steering wheel
Look online for: Wheelskins
Go to their website..... not just all the resellers.
Quality products that stay nice for a very long time.

Re: Coupe back roll up window

Any comments from Coupe owners that have the rear window
that can roll up or down? Do you use it often? Does it give better

Input appreciated
